It was a mediocre week for Dancing With the Stars competitors overall, but there were bright spots. Notably the emergence of Rob Kardashian and David Arquette.
On the other end of the spectrum, there were routines that the celebs and pros would just as soon forget, leaving a slew of dancers in jeopardy on the results show.
While you never know going into the Dancing With the Stars results show, it seemed semi-clear to us which competitors had a better path to safety than others.
This time, unlike some weeks, our intuitions were correct.
So who got the chop among the top eight celebrities when the week's results were unveiled? Who is safe to tango their way into our hearts another week?
Carson Kressley had the lowest score of the week, with Chaz Bono and Nance Grace close behind. One of the three is sitting on the sideline now. Which one?
Follow the jump to find out ...Carson Kressley, despite being considered a crowd favorite by so many, could not overcome a few straight weeks of lackluster efforts on the parquet.
Despite the fact that his departure was greeted by a loud "Noooo!" from the audience, few can argue they didn't see it coming, or that he was robbed.
"Thank you to everybody at dancing with the stars," he said. "This has been pure joy ... I hope I could make everyone laugh and smile along the way."
It was great being here." Mission accomplished, Carson. Well done.
And then there were seven. Can anyone stop the J.R. Martinez express, or is he charting a course to the finals? Can Ricki Lake bounce back next week?
We'll find out. For now, comment below and vote in our poll:
Did Carson Kressley deserve to be voted off DWTS?
